What is recessed lighting?

Recessed lights, also known as “can lights”, are a type of light fixture that are mounted directly into the existing ceiling. The majority of the lights are housed above the ceiling drywall, so all you see is the trim and the bulb, giving the appearance of a light “recessed” into the ceiling. Most recessed lights have circular diameters available in 4–12” sizes.

Recessed lighting is very popular in modern homes because it is subtle, yet provides a lot of light. It can be used to create general lighting, ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting, depending on the type and placement of the fixtures. Unlike traditional overhead fixtures, recessed lighting fixtures are not as visible and emit light from a more centralized source.

Recessed Lighting Benefits

Recessed lighting can be installed for many applications. Whether you’re looking to illuminate an entire room, highlight artwork, create a cozy atmosphere, or even provide task lighting for specific activities, recessed lights might be the perfect solution.

In addition to their aesthetic value, installing recessed LED lights can also help you save on energy costs. LED recessed lighting is more efficient and can last up to three times longer than traditional light bulbs, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them as often. You love your LED recessed lighting cost savings!

Using a recessed light trim and dimmer switch, you can easily adjust the light levels to create a dramatic effect that will showcase certain room features. If you want to add a more subtle effect, you can use a gimbal trim to direct the light without creating harsh shadows. No matter what your style, the recessed lighting service from Chesapeake Electric can help you set up a unique and beautiful look in your home.

What Our Happy Customers Are Saying


I hired Chesapeake Electric to convert 7 recessed lights to LED and hang a new light fixture. Kevin was my technician. Someone else was with him but I’m sorry I don’t remember his name. Both were very well spoken, friendly and knowledgeable. Kevin explained the work that would be done and helped me decide on the color temperature and brightness of the LED lights. I was a little indecisive but Kevin was patient with me. Kevin did an inspection of my home and found that the service panel outside was badly damaged. He recommended that it be replaced and explained why. He came back the next day and repaired it and swapped out two breakers. Overall, I was very pleased with the work that was done. I especially appreciated Kevin’s willingness to take the time to explain the work so that I could understand what would be done. I will definitely use this company again.

Just found my new go to for electric work. Thanks Zach for the thorough service you provided. Give this guy a raise. He's the only one coming back to get work done at my home. I told you I'd leave a good word only if you did a great job. Well here is. Thanks again

A quick google search of "best electricians near me" provided me with Chesapeake Electric, and I am glad it did! From setting up the appointment to my electrician (Aaron), the company was awesome and made short work of my project. I will be using them time and time again!
